!New this year…….. Midway Friends & Family Advent Celebration Activity Nights!
Everyone is invited for the first three Sunday evenings in Advent to prepare and celebrate the season in a hands-on, fun-filled hour for all ages!
Meeting in the Foyer space and library, we'll gather to color several huge Advent posters together around tables, using a great selection of colored pencils (or bring your own), while listening to Advent stories being read, listening to music, focusing on a particular scripture, drinking hot chocolate with peppermint, and having yummy treats.
The beautiful posters will be used to decorate the church when they are finished!
Bring a friend, bring yourself, bring your family, bring your grandkids or grandparent and be part of this memorable and fun time of Advent preparation!
Also bring a treat or snack to share if you can.
Starts Sunday evening, December 2, from 6:00 – 7:00pm. See you there!
Please contact Cherlyn if you'd be willing to help set up for any of these evenings, thanks!
